Let's not kid ourselves. The forecast is for up to 80mm of rain. Stay in bed where it's warm and safe.  ^-^

 

Keen to reschedule ASAP.

Hi All

 

I have made the call to postpone this event for two reasons.

1. The weather forecast for Sunday just keeps getting worse, we are now getting severe weather & flood warnings. This will likely close Audley Weir.

2. I can no lobger make it. Have a mate of 40+ years coming to Sydney due to family illness and needs my help with a few things.

 

I will have a think about an alternate date, maybe Sunday June 19th ?

 

Cheers

 

PB

Thanks PB, I think you've made a wise call, a disappointment for sure but you can't beat mother nature and far less disappointing than something unfortunate happening on the drive, thanks for having the sense for calling it as it is, enjoy the weekend with your mate.

Regards Craig

Hi

The 12th is a long weekend so will give that a miss.
Will see what the general consensus is re the date.

Cheers

Below is a photo of Audley Weir, on our intended route, this morning.
Tomorrow is meant to be even wetter.

This is what it looks like this morning. That red Mazda has been sacrificed...

Did that Mazda have a for sale with phone number on the rear screen? I see something has been blurred out.

I guess that's 1 way to get rid of it, park it there and hope for nature to take care of the rest? :)

How are we looking for the 19th, locking it in or moving it to July?

That is a shame but the numbers seem to be in favour of the 19th, so will go with that.
